Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Catchers

Ben Carsley

A look at how the position stacks up from now through 2017.

When Bret Sayre is your boss, rankings are in your future. We have one-year rankings and dynasty rankings and tiered rankings and will probably have ranking rankings someday; we’re turning into the fantasy baseball equivalent of Deadspin, and for many of you, that’s a good thing.

But of all these breakdowns, three-year rankings are, in my estimation, among the most unique and the most useful. Best designed for those of you in keeper leagues, but of note for dynasty leaguers and even re-drafters as well, these lists break down the future landscape of a position in a more reasoned manner. We’re not worried about Low-A guys or young players who might switch positions in their mid-30s. We’re worried about the here and now yet don’t want to totally mortgaging the future, which is a strategy that will win you many a league.
